RPL – Recognition of Prior Learning
Are you seeking formal recognition, or RPL, for work already performed in your industry?
Do you need to upgrade to the latest qualifications & have recent & relevant industry experience?
If you feel that you possess considerable skills and knowledge in one or more areas within a particular qualification, either through previous studies or work then get in touch today.
Our RPL process (Recognition of prior learning) can formally credit you towards those units of a course in which you can demonstrate, or provide evidence towards a qualification.
What is RPL?
Recognition of prior learning, or RPL, is a process of giving students credit for skills, knowledge and experience gained through working and learning.
These skills can be gained at any stage of their lives, through formal and informal learning, in Australia or overseas, through work or other activities such as volunteering.
This has the benefit of not only acknowledging your efforts, but also reducing the volume and time taken to gain a new qualification, or in some cases, the current appropriate qualification to match your role. Many people have skills and knowledge gained since commencing employment which is not documented on paper, in fact most skills and knowledge is gained after commencement of employments, as is the nature of vocational education.

This is particularly the case where people have been working in the industry a considerable amount of time, when the entry level requirements or qualifications were quite different than what is required today. The fear of having to repeat a whole course can be minimized by undergoing a Recognition of Prior Learning , or RPL, assessment.
Having the set of qualifications that truly reflects your current skills and knowledge can benefit you by making you more employable and in some cases eligible for promotion, when competing in the marketplace with fresh graduates possessing all the current qualifications.
While successful RPL doesn’t impact the qualification cost, it can have a sizeable impact on the amount of work required and hence the time taken to complete the course.
